The Neighbor Fund

The Neighbor Fund provides emergency home-heating grants to customers of Orange & Rockland no matter what type of fuel is used. You don't have to repay the grant money, and you don’t have to meet any age limits or income guidelines.

To qualify for The Neighbor Fund grants, you:

  • Must have an account with Orange & Rockland;
  • Must exhaust all governmental resources available for financial assistance;
  • Must provide supporting documentation of emergency or crisis circumstances (medical bills, unemployment notification, etc.)

Apply for the Neighbor Fund
